Medical Ministries at GO InterNational

Why would a small mission agency focused on short-term missions through long-term partnerships have a director of medical missions?  That’s the question I had to ask and answer when I was asked to join the staff of GO in 2008.  Our ministry focuses on helping our international partners take the gospel to the ends of the earth.  Most of our partners are involved in evangelism and church planting. However, they also live in areas where people have great physical needs, including the need for health care.  When we bring a medical team to serve the needs of the people our partners minister to, we show them the love of Christ in a tangible way.  We do this in the context of the ministry of our international pertner so that their effectiveness in ministry is enhanced. When people come to Christ as a reslut of our medical outreach, they are doing so within our partners’ ministries so there are people to walk with them in the discipleship process. We have also expanded our medical ministry in the pst two years to include Community Health Evangelism(CHE).  CHE is a wholistic ministry in which churches reach out to the community to minister to physical as well as spiritual needs.  The result is that individulas in the community are transformed, leading to healthier communities and growing churches.  It’s a great time to be involved in the medical ministry of GO InterNational.
